Jen's Seattle Adventure - Saturday

Saturday morning dawned rainy again. LOL So today I got to trudge to the convention center through 1-2" of standing water! Fab. I could have driven, but I categorically refused to pay $14 to park my car. :o)
I hit the vendor faire again briefly to turn in my door prize ticket and to pick up a couple of tin kits that the Boxer Productions rep had shown us in the class the night before that we just too cute and too good of a deal to pass up, plus I wanted to get the templates to make more anyways.

My first class today was My Daughter's Hand, which was Quick Quotes girl version of the explosion book class I took yesterday. Cute project, but we had a bit of excitement - one of the girls in the class had a seizure about a third of the way into the class and we had to call for an ambulance. I felt so bad for her. She's okay, though.

My next class was Take the Printer to the Project, sponsered by Xyron. We ended up not doing the projects, but just learning how to yuse the Xyron Design Runner, but we got a ton of cool products. We got the Making Memories Vintage Hip paper collection, the Bazzill Hillary Monochromatic Trio cardstock pack, the MM Vintage Hip Trim kit, and the MM Vintage Hip Findings kit. Awesomeness! And more awesomeness? I won a the Romance design card for the Design Runner! I told Matt that he needs to buy me one now! LOL

My last class of the convention was Quick & Fabulous Embellishments, sponsered by Deluxe Designs. This one came out cute, but it was definitely too much for 1 hour, since everything needed to be traced and cut out. Apparently, it used to be a 90-minute class. Oh well. I finished mine up at the crop.

At the crop, I sat next to a set of sisters from Idaho that were a bunch of fun to hang out with. I won a door prize, too! I won a CK Easy Scrapbooking idea book. Here's the layouts I managed to finish up:

My Tyson layout still needs to have the journaling printed out, as well as a couple of smaller pictures for the right hand page. My About Me layout needs the picture (that will go where I have the white paper), too. I forgot to print one out in the dark room before I left for Seattle! LOL
So that's pretty much my trip! I'll probably think of more later, but enjoy for now!

I'm so impressed with all the products you got in your class! And the layouts you did look great!
